Orders of the Day — Health and Education — 13 Nov 2007 at 21:31

Brooks Newmark MP, Braintree voted in the minority (Aye).

I beg to move, as an amendment to the Address, at the end of the Question to add:

'but regret the absence of measures in the Gracious Speech to empower professionals responsible for the delivery of health and education services and of measures which would make those services more accountable to patients and parents; deplore the absence of measures to improve public health and reduce health inequalities; regret the lack of a reformed legislative structure for the National Health Service which would reduce central targets and devolve decision-making closer to patients and enable health services to respond to the need for high quality and accessible care; further regret the lack of measures to deal with school discipline, raise standards in literacy, numeracy, science and languages, address under-performance in the primary sector, tackle disadvantage at its roots and provide effective support in the earliest years; and further regret the absence of measures which would deliver the real improvements needed in these and related public services.'.

Question put, That the amendment be made:-

The House divided: Ayes 211, Noes 311.
